It turns out I don’t have a lot of personal experience with the subject, but I am familiar with it. There are people who believe in past lives, just as there are people who don’t.
My personal belief is that everything is energy and energy never dies, it only transforms. So it is totally conceivable to me that past lives are a reality in this illusion of space-time 🙂 In fact, I have a much harder time connecting with the concept of heaven or hell as a place, because my spirit tells me heaven and hell are not places, but rather experiences.
We make our own definition of our reality through our consciousness. The essence of our life force is not the physical matter that makes up our bodies, but rather the energy that moves within it. However, in this physical world, we connect with the tangible and tactile experiences derived from our bodies and connection to other bodies and we associate that physical expression with the life force within.
Probably everyone has experienced a little dé·jà vu, the illusion of remembering scenes and events when experienced for the first time; a feeling that one has seen or heard something before — been there, done that. Also, there is just a recurring theme in your life experience, maybe a little different each time, and yet strangely similar.
We seem to be drawn to life experiences over and over again. We are often compelled to certain subjects or places with such magnetic force that it cannot be resisted.
Are these symptoms of past life experience?
Maybe yes, maybe no, you have to decide for yourself what fits your definition of your reality.
I am reminded of a meditation experience I had a couple of years ago:
In meditation the universe whispers to me … it recently spoke to this question of linear being and expressed that I consider that rather than one god and many souls, there was only one soul with many desires of physical experience and expression.
The soul is the universal life energy or force, the all-pervasive space that permeates the entire universe. It is eternal, but formless; it is the super consciousness, self-aware information and energy.
To fulfill its desires, it manifested a universal ecosystem and compartmentalized itself into separate physical life forms to enjoy the experience fully.
The universal ecosystem is a gallery of life, it is a beautiful ballet, a sublime symphony, a divine drama, a passionate play … it only works as a cooperative, therefore separateness and chronology is necessary to complete the experience. It is an ongoing evolutionary playground for the one soul.
We are one with everything and everyone throughout space-time, the eternal joy of life.
Everything is energy, or vibration. We are translators of vibration. We translate vibration in many ways, and our ability to translate changes over time in relation to our growth and expansion. You may notice that your perceptions change over time as you develop yourself. Do not limit yourself to your early translations, or translations of others!
